: eric shawn live in boston. eric, thank you. we are still trying to get to the real story on tamerlan tsarnaev's trip to russia last year and his possible ties to terrorism and islamic extremism. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is following that thread tonight. >> the fbi's handling of tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 and six-month trip to russia the following year now face congressional scrutiny. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia and, if you weren't, the reason? >> yes. the system pinged when he was leaving the united states. by the time he returned all investigations had been -- the matter had been closed. >> napolitano said the lookout system that flags agents federal investigation no longer active when tamerlan returned from russia in july of 2012. >> the system picked up departure but did not pick him coming back, correct? >> the fbi text alert on him at that point was more than a year old and had expired. >> napolitano's pluck contradict briefing given by the fbi director. >> after talking to the fbi they told me they had no knowledge of him leav
who's an awlaki type guy. a preacher who tamerlan tsarnaev in his youtube account posts videos from, so he may have played a role in inspiring these, inspiring them or radicalizing them. but as i said, chris, we're a long way from finishing this investigation. >> so just to use your instincts as an investigative reporter, and you're a good one, the fact he said all this, he denied any connections to any networking. he basically said this was a self-radicalization, in other words. he said that they learned how to build these bombs online. if that turns out not to be true, then he has a bigger risk of the death penalty, is that what you're saying? >> reporter: sure. because then he's got cooperating with law enforcement, but he's also lost his leverage by saying this. it is in his interest to be able to tell them something. >> you think a lawyer, michael, would have told him to hold out until he got a deal? >> reporter: absolutely. absolutely. the one thing a lawyer is going to try to do at this point is to save his life. the one way to do that is show cooperation by pointing the fing
that the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and that dzhokhar may have been the follower? >> i can't hear him. >> chris: okay. we have lost the commissioner temporarily. while we try to re-establish that connection, we're going to continue our conversation. and with so many questions still unanswered we'll come back to commissioner when we can. so many questions still unanswered about the terror plot and how to protect our homeland we invited two congressional leaders on national security to discuss what happens now. dianne feinstein is chair of the senate intelligence committee. congressman pete king is head of the house sub committee on counterterrorism and he joins us from new york. senator, congressman, hold on, we're going to go back to the police commissioner. do you have a sense whether the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and dzhokhar was somehow followed him in the conspiracy? >> any information along those lines is based upon conjecture at this point in time. i don't know definitively who was the motivator here. there is clearly evidence published publicly t
. >> understood. do you have reason to believe the older brother, tamerlan, was the leader in this and that dzhokhar may have been the follower? can you hear me, commissioner? we have lost the commissioner temporarily. while we try to re-establish that connection, we're going to continue our conversation, and with so many questions still unanswered, we'll come back to the commissioner when we can. so many questions still unanswered about the terror plot and how to protect our homeland, we've invited two congressional leaders on national security to discuss what happens now. dianne feinstein is chair of the senate intelligence committee, congressman pete king is chair of the house committee on counterterrorism, and he joins us live from new york. i'm sorry. i've got him in my ear. senator, congressman, hold on. we're going to go back to the police commissioner. do you have a sense whether the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this, and dzhokhar somehow followed him into the conspiracy? >> any information along those lines is based upon conjecture at this point in time
of tamerlan. they investigated tamerlan and he was part of a big bomb plot. did the fbi fail? i would say they probably -- something sliped through the cracks for them. it wasn't their most shining moment. however, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we had our special s
of tamerlan tsarnaev, after he spent six months in russia. senator diane feinstein, chairing the intelligence committee, said senior f.b.i. may testify tomorrow about why they did not pursue the matter further. i misspoke in that set-up piece. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in his hospital room today. we're joined by a reporter who has been following developments closely. dina temple raston is npr as anti-terrorism correspondent. welcome to you. do we know how much or what investigators are learning from tsarnaev in the hospital so far? >> well, there's been very little that they've learnd because he can't really understand that he can't speak. he has a tube in his throat. he has some sort of a wound on his neck and his hand. apparently to his jaw. there's some question as to whether or not it was a self-inflicted wound. so as a result apparently they're writing notes back and forth. it's unclear if those notes are ra port building so he learns to trust these people who are trying to question him or where they're getting substantive information from him. >> brown: what can you tell us a
poured out of their homes to applaud law enforcement. suspect number 1, tamerlan tsarnaev, killed earlier in the day after a wild shootout. we've got jam packed hour today. adam housley is outside beth israel hospital where suspect number 2 is under guard. catherine herridge is following the investigation. here in studio is america's mayor, mayor rudy guiliani. first let's go to adam in boston. bring us up to date on the very latest. >> yes. we're hearing from the f.b.i. there may be a statement coming out at some point in the next couple of minutes. we haven't heard from them since last night. we heard about the suspect brought here in certificates condition. i'll step away. you can see the police presence is here at the hospital in boston. it's been here all night. every exit and entrance is covered. the floor where the suspect number 2 dzhokhar tsarnaev is located has police presence as well, as you might imagine outside his room and on the hospital floor. anybody going in, coming out of this hospital has to have their bag checked, as well as their i.d we also have the picture from the
. the two brothers, the one who was killed last night tamerlan tsarnaev. the man police are looking for at this hour is dzhokhar tsarnaev, identified by the fbi as wearing the white hat, as you can see in the photograph there. those were the photographs from the scene on monday at the boston marathon that were made public by the fbi last night. dzhokhar the man at large has a massachusetts driver's license and was born in kyrgyzstan. they came to the u.s. with their family in 2002, 2003. may have been here well over a decade in the united states. >> and has left a trail of devastation in their wake. pete williams also saying that this chase last night, which culminated and still continues now, but culminated in a huge shootout with the sounds of gunfire and explosives ringing through the streets of watertown in the dark of night. these guys were the ones who started this by potentially a realizing their faces were out there and if they wanted to make another mark or make a break for it, they had to do it right away. it involved them robbing a 7-eleven, carjacking someone, letting th
questions in the boston marathon bombing. what was the motive? the f.b.i. says it interviewed tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 after being told by a foreign government, reportedly russia, he had become a follower of riradical islam. they found no evidence of terrorist activity at that time. did the chech anyian brothers act alone or was it a broughter plan with coconspiracies in the u.s. or overseas? wayne simmons, a former c.i.a. analyst and joins us now with some insight. thank you for coming in today. >> always a pleasure. >> i want to ask you about this. the way that the bombs they use have had been described, you know, many law enforcement sources said they were too sophisticated for somebody who was going to google and throw something together that the brothers had to have training at some point. for what they are accused of doing. what do you make of that? >> all of us, first of all, those agree that nothing today is 100% certain. that is where we need to start. if i had to make a guess, i would remind guys like me that 12 years ago, 13 years ago the chechens were in afghanistan trying
